The Anime might tweak a few things, but majority of the storyline is the same.

The good news is Index novel is ending soon. So, the anime staffs are not hand-tied by the novel material. They can bring in more creative material.

Minus a couple of small details in the Railgun anime, such as when Kongou transferred in. Little things like that that don't really matter in the long run.

EDIT: Whoops lust thought the last page was the final one and answered without seeing it had already been done.

Well, that's already over, but the way he said it seemed to imply the entire novel series, including NT.

Is the new season of Railgun as good as season 1?

I'm an anime-only viewer, and personally I would say the new season is a very good continuation to the first. But this isn't really a question that can be answered with "facts", since it's just an opinion. It's at least work checking out, anyway.

It's a bit more darker in tone as it is dealing with some rather nasty business from Railgun's past it also looks to be a getting bit more action oriented then season 1. So it is up to you if those make it better or worse

It works by overloading your powers, making the esper who takes it experience an overload.

In the anime it takes the form of pills.

In the manga its a powdery substance.

Body Crystal isn't discussed at all in Railgun season 1. You're thinking Level Upper, which is something else entirely.

That's actually slightly wrong.

The poltergeist arc was about the ability crystal. That's kind of related to body crystal in that it caused the esper who takes it to overload as we saw. This was from episode 24.

It was during the arc with episodes 22-24 though. This I remember. Like julioalqae says, it wasn't mentioned by name. It's implicitly mentioned though...

I was fairly certain that the First Sample and Body Crystal were two distinct things. That said, watching Railgun season 1 would still be fairly useless in expanding upon Body Crystal if it's not explicit. Especially when Body Crystal doesn't play a truly important role to the plot until well into the TAMNI light novels.

There's speculation Body Crystal and Ability Crystal are related. That's why he said that... That's all, I guess... (It isn't for sure, just probable).

I mean they cause the same phenomenon in terms of their effects. (Technically though, given that the time difference between railgun season 1 and railgun S is so small, they would have had very very little time to develop body crystal from the ability crystal... either AC's darkness is very fast or they're completely unrelated.

No, I've since read up on it and understand why it was brought up, but without an explicit mention, no one would've realized said connection. Especially if it's from speculation.

From what I understand there should've been plenty of time though. The First Sample seems to have been created from when that flashback with Telestina Kihara and Gensei Kihara.
